ChIPs Bill of Rights


In 2003, the San Francisco Partnership for Incarcerated Parents published the Bill of Rights for Children of Incarcerated Parents. This list of eight different rights are used to improve how children are viewed and how they can be treated within different systems.

Katelen Fortunati, MSW LCSW, the author of Safer Society Foundation’s ChIPs Storybooks, is a mental health clinician in Belleville, IL. She leads an early intervention program for children of incarcerated parents and travels widely to conduct training workshops for school counselors and social workers on school-based interventions for children of incarcerated parents.
